Operation Surf is proud to offer programs that use surfing, along with other activities, to help military heroes overcome their personal challenges.

“My passion for surfing and staying in the ocean saved my life. Seeing how it helped me as a young man, I want to share my experiences and mentor others as a positive role model, to share the beneficial value of surfing and its lifestyle.”

– Operation Surf founder Van Curaza
